There is a new twist to the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) contract saga as the commission has asked the Senator representing Delta North Senatorial District, Peter Nwaoboshi to refund a sum of N2. 552 billion, oyogist.com reports.
Senator Nwaoboshi, chairman of the senate Committee on Niger Delta was told to refund the N2.552 billion that was given to him for contracts for the production of chairs and desks for both secondary and primary schools in the Niger Delta region but failed to implement it.
According to findings, the Inspector General of Police has received a petition against senator Nwaoboshi on the N2. 552 billion and the IGP has ordered investigation into the matter. Nwaoboshi was however given two weeks to refund the N2.552 billion to the Commission.
Senator Nwaoboshi isn’t alone in this saga as the the heat is also on Dr. Joi Nunieh, NDDC former acting managing director who was given 7 days to refund N1.96 billion.
Reports has it that Nunieh approved a payment of N1.96 billion for lassa fever kits without following the lay down principles and processes.
